Webinar: Fuel Cell Electric Buses: Progress toward Meeting Technical Targets

May 17, 2018 12:00PM to 1:00PM EDT

The Fuel Cell Technologies Office (FCTO) will present a live webinar titled "Fuel Cell Electric Buses: Progress toward Meeting Technical Targets" on Thursday, May 17, from 12 to 1 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time (EDT). Leslie Eudy of the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) will discuss progress made toward meeting technical targets for fuel cell electric buses (FCEBs). In 2012, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) and the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) established technical targets to measure the progress of FCEBs toward commercialization. Targets include performance metrics such as fuel cell hour accumulation, fuel economy, availability, and reliability. Cost targets include capital, major components, and maintenance. NREL, under funding from both DOE and FTA, has been evaluating the performance of FCEBs compared to these technical targets and to conventional buses in similar service. This webinar will provide the most recent performance results from FCEBs operated by six transit agencies. The webinar will be recorded and conclude with a 15-minute Q&A portion.
